Bennett: No More Prisoner Releases

Jewish Home chairman says prisoner swaps sign fate for unborn Jews, Israelis

Jewish Home leader Naftali Bennett told the party’s Knesset faction, “The arrest of Baruch Mizrahi’s killer, a man who was released in the Gilad Shalit deal, proves that the idea of releasing terrorists has reached its end. For 30 years we have been guided by this concept; today the concept collapsed.

“Every prisoner release signs the fate of more Israelis, Israelis who don’t have families who will fight for their right to live, for the simple reason that these (future victims) do not yet have names and faces. But their fate has been sealed with the releases.

“When speaking about prisoner releases we always hear that ‘maybe it will lead to peace,’ maybe they’ve learned their lessons.’ After all, they signed documents upon release that they wouldn’t go back to terror activity. But my friends, listen: We’re in the Middle East. Killers remain killers. And they must remain behind bars.

“Hamas is not the only party responsible for this murder,” Bennett added. “Those who celebrated the murders’ release, who name public squares after them and who fund the Palestinian Authority also finance thousands of killers who sit today in Israeli jails, and their families – the Palestinian Authority also bears responsibility for the murder.

“After 30 years of lopsided prisioner deals, we say clearly: We will not release any more prisoners,” Bennett said.

  73. Sorry Judith, You can't make a wolf into a dog unless you start with a pup. These people are taught and trained from childhood to kill Jews. It starts in kindergarden or even before that.. The Palestinian government pushes Jew hatred constantly.It is applauded in school plays,and they see their older brothers and fathers being held up as heroes for killing Jewish civilians. The heroes of their culture are the terrorists. even the teenage murderers of the Fogel family in Itamar were hailed as heroes of Palestine for cutting the throat of a Jewish infant. These people should be treated as they would if they coimitted these crimes in Texas,USA. Life sentences are too lenient. They should never see the outside of a prison. The worst part of their imprisonment is that the Jewish people have to pay to feed ,,house them,and provide medical care for them.
